Watch: Broadcasting: serves you or politicians?

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Peppi Azzopardi and Ranier Fsadni are the guests of Fr Joe Borg during Newsbook Hour on Saturday at 9am on 103 Malta’s Heart. The programme will also be broadcast on Newsbook.com.mt and Facebook live.

The panel will discuss:

  • Is broadcasting serving you or is it serving politicians?
  • In whose interest is the decision of the Braodcasting Authority to prohibit PBS from broadcasting the questions journalists ask the Prime Minister following a press conference? Is it censorship as the Institute of Maltese Journalists says, or is it plain observance of the law?
  • Did PBS axe Xarabank as a result of political pressure or was it a decision taken to come up with a more interesting and entertaining schedule?

The controversy about politically owned stations is never ending. But if businessmen have the right to own a station, why should political parties have the same right?
